Nikon can't even supply lenses that are current!!!

Last year I put my name down for a 2x Z converter to use with the 70-200, after a few months I gave up. I've now been waiting weeks for the 105mm Z Macro. Nikon are just too slow rolling out new lenses and after they launch them they are impossible to get.

This feedback seems not 100% accurate

Whatever your view on Civid - it is still holding up a lot of production in the Far East.

Other camera companies have supply constraints as well as Nikon.

A few S 2x converters have trickled though to the UK - and there has been at least 2 UK delivery of the 105 S macro.

Putting an order in is not the same as being top of the queue when new products are in high demand and supplies are limited.

Forecasting demand is not an exact science. The original DX 18-200 was on back order for 2 years - even though Nikon set up a new production line to increase the supply.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
